You were given all this right from the cradle.You cannot possibly imagine your life without your mobile phone,without checking your statuses on Facebook first thing in the morning.You play games on your computer,tablet or iPhone for hours on end.You are overwhelmed by the need to chat with your friends,measure your worth based on the number of friends or followers you have.An overload of information bombards your brain daily and you don't have the necessary filters to dilute it,to separate the truth from the bullshit.You have become a passive recipient of this rapid techological advancement.You cannot hold a conversation of essence for longer that 5 minutes without getting distracted.You care for celebrity gossip so much it consumes you.You know more about the Kardashians than about the ever worsening problem of global warming and you don't give a damn about who's governing your country.
You don't care much for books and reading is considered a waste of time.Many of you have difficulty writing even the simplest task,even if it is just one paragraph.Your imagination switch is off,all rusty from remaining unused.You don't read,therefore you lack the necessary skill of thought,critical judgment and clear expression of opinion.Hey,you are unable to have a simple discussion with your family over dinner,absorbed by your mobiles.Eye contact is something to be avoided,something that makes you uncomfortable.It has become unfamiliar in our technologically advanced times.
Wake up child.Technology is here to serve us, not to enslave us and stupefy our senses.Wake up to the reality of the people in your life,your family and friends,the world out there.There are problems in the world that are serious,that need caring people to alleviate them.To solve them.There's hunger and abject poverty,leading millions of children to their premature demise.There are wars and abhorrent violence child.Mother Earth is suffering from the torture we are inflicting upon her daily with out selfish and self-serving actions.Nature has suffered severe blows.Forests are vanishing and numerous animal species are quickly becoming extinct.We ourselves have lost our humanity,by not caring for our home,for our fellow travellers,which we are ruthlessly and heartlessly killing slowly but surely,without remorse.Who ever said we are Gods and have such a right?It is our obligation and our privilege to take care of this beautiful blue gem,treat it and all the life dwelling on it with respect and love.
We like to think we have all the time in the world child.Time is not something infinite, though.Our bodies have a limited time on this planet.So, make the most of this experience while you still have this vessel.Show respect and love to yourself and all forms of life on this good Earth.Give of your love to others and it shall be returned to you a thousandfold.Give of your time, to create memories that will last and outlive time itself.Educate yourself on a variety of subjects.Knowledge is power.Knowledge opens the way to opportunities and paves the way to success.Question everything you hear,no matter who it comes from.Don't let the media and technology have free reign over your mind.Use your brain.Help whenever you can or even better create the circumstances to help.The world thirsts for your light.With so many problems and so much darkness all of our light,love and service is necessary.
Don't let the technological stupor and comfort drag you in its magic.Use technology with care and cautiousness.Even better,use it to serve a worthwhile cause.Make technology your servant.Use it to help the world.You'll be grateful you did.
Of course I don't expect the world to go back to the way it was when I was a child myself.But I do hope and strive for a world where our first priority is to become a better version of ourselves.A world where we are not puppets of a master called technology but rather we are the masters of a very efficient servant.I know this is not unrealistic.It is a possible reality if we allow a shift in our minds to take place.A shift towards humanity,nature and respect for our home,our planet.It will take hard work.It is worth it.Because I do believe that celebrity news and gossip about celebrity diet fads or relationship statuses are inferior to the celebration of humanity,love and our Earth.Our time is that limited and precious that it should be spent on experiences of value.Experiences of our our own lives,elevated to timeless dimensions.Our own lives,not anyone else's.So,child,live.Truly live.Toss away your mobile and feel,give and love.That's what life is all about.
With love and light,
